    If I apply for a Bankwest Breeze MAstercard credit card, can I balance transfer debt from other credit cards that are in my partner’s name as well as my own?

    Thanks!

      Hi Jon,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Yes, you can however you need to have your partner as your additional card holder to process balance transfer with the card under your partner’s name. Please make sure that the total balance transfer amount should not exceed your Breeze card’s 95% credit limit/available balance including the balance transfer fee/s.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Annie,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      The maximum balance transfer limit is 95% of the approved credit limit. For example, you have been approved for $5,000, you may use 95% of it which is $4,750 for Balance Transfer.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out again to us if you have additional questions.

      Cheers,
      Ash

      Hello Jellina,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Yes, you can transfer your existing balance from St.George to Bankwest. According to Bankwest credit card terms and conditions, only Australian issued non-Bankwest credit/store cards can be balanced transferred.

    Can I transfer from a personal loan to a Bankwest Breeze credit card with 26 months interest-free?

      Hi Sandy,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      I’m afraid you can’t transfer a personal loan to a Bankwest Breeze Mastercard credit card. It only allows you to transfer a balance from another non-Bankwest credit card.

      If you want to find credit cards that allow you to transfer your personal loan balance, please refer to our guide in transferring a loan to a credit card. On that page, you will see a table that allows you to conveniently compare cards that let you transfer a personal loan to a credit card. You can compare based on balance transfer rate, purchase rate, and fees, to name a few. Once you found the right one for you, click on the “Go to Site” green button to learn more or initiate your application.

      Please make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features, and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

    Why does it say 0% interest on purchases for the first 13 months, then only 55 days interest-free? Which one is it?

      Hello Tyler,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Please note that the Bankwest Breeze Mastercard offers new customers 0% p.a. interest on purchases for the first 13 months. The interest-free days do not only apply to purchases but also applies to the overall balance of the credit card. You must pay the closing balance, including any cash advances and balances, to qualify for interest-free days.

      Find out how the 55 days interest-free works. Also, please check how the 0% interest-free on purchases works.
